points. in sunday the state's republican governor john kasich said romney has the momentum. >> i believe right now we are currently ahead. internals show us currently ahead. honestly think that romney's going to carry ohio and you know i haven't been saying this. i now believe it's going to happen. >> reporter: romney canceled a campaign event tomorrow in new hampshire. his campaign is not overly alarmed by all the cancelations because he's focusing instead >>> we are looking at dense fog around the bay area looking toward coit tower. the giant orange as the giants have won the world series. the fog is going to lift today. temperatures in the 40s and 50s. seeing delays at sfo for over an hour because of the fog. 70s, low 80s inland. and 60s coast side. next couple days looking nice. slight chance of showers on wednesday. >>> the approaching hurricane is forcing hundreds of thousands of traveler tos to change their plans. we'll show how long it could take for airline schedules to return to normal. >>> also, what you need to do if your flight has been canceled. >>> and for the
. good morning, i'm john berman. >> i'm zoraida sambolin. we have a field of reporters covering the aftermath of sandy from every angle. rob marciano in new york city. dan lothian and paul steinhouser standing by in washington, d.c. and richard quest is also out there for us. >> with 1/3 of the people in new york city, 2 million people here without power. transportation is at a virtual standstill at a few time where few people have cars, not to mention the property and destux. 80 homes were consumed by fire in keeps. recovery from super storm sandy will be a mammoth job. rob marciano is in the chelsea neighborhood here in new york city. he is joining us live. rob, i was there live yesterday. what was amazing was the exodus of people coming out where it is black right now. many people moving uptown to find power, food and information. >> reporter: yeah, it is stunning. when you go from the typical lit northern manhattan area and come south of 30th street, it just goes completely dark. it is something i have never seen in new york city. the people, the differences in how people re
's bring in john feary and david goodfriend. good to see you, gentlemen. good morning. david, let me ask you about mitt romney as appeal to hillary clinton veeters. could he pick off moderate democrats? >> no. in order to be a hillary clinton voter you see the world a lot differently than mitt romney says he does. i think the divisiveness the romney campaign has shown economically and frankly when it comes to women's issues, it's going to drive people back into the obama camp. it's an interesting thing, because he may very well have had a shot at some of the moderate democratic voters in ohio, but i think his campaign has stumbled in that it never shown itself to be an open, big tent for moderates. it's still very conservative, severely conservative as mitt romney might say, and taehat's going to drive hillary clinton voters back into the fold with the democratic party. i'm privacy in internal p polls in ohio. i can't speak about the specifics, and i'll smiling. the margin is better. ohio is much more in play, especially when the consider how early voting is outperforming in the heavily
the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yesterday's gdp report was pretty favorable. the obama campaign saying this is proof that the economy is starting to rebound, but mitt romney in a big speech in iowa on the economy said just the opposite. >> today we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after th
not accurate. host: john prible, because of these hurricanes that we looked at earlier in 2004 and sandy, will those rates go up overall? guest: not as a result of this particular storm. what fema is currently doing and have been for about 10 years, they're undergoing a massive modernization project where they are going across the country using scientific and engineering models to remap. we had a caller earlier who said that the map was old and out of date. that will not be the case. so there will be changes to flood zones over the coming years if you cannot already had a change. you may have one coming in the next two years. but it will not be the result of a particular storm or particular flooding event. these policies are different than private insurance policies in that regard. for example, if you have an auto insurance policy and get into an accident and make a claim, your insurance premiums going forward may increase because of your history. the national flood insurance program does not quite work that way. in that individual storms or flooding events don't have a direct bearing on
could it be? believe it or not, this guy thinks he has an idea. a researcher at johns hopkins, he's predicted how many of us may lose power. remember, irene left 7 million without power. >> our model suggest 10 million. >> reporter: roughly 10 million without power for a week or more. if 50 million feel the effect of this, 1 in 5, could be without electricity. a very big storm coming our way. >> that's an unbelievable number. >>> we'll go back out to sam champion in new york city, in preparations under way for how this city, the largest city in the country, would deal with hurricane sandy. >> bianna, you know, we have seen storms move up this coastline and breeze by new york. only one hurricane in recent memory irene made a move to this city and the city got ready for it. forecasters are being careful to let folks know right away that this storm has more strong effects than irene may have had. new york city is operating under a state of emergency and wants everyone prepared today for a monday storm. boarding up homes and buildings. >> i'm really nervous about this. i am. i'm cooki
the government, which has been a great operationally. i mean, john and i can talk about things and share with our colleagues in a way that we were not able to do, our counterparts were not able to do before september 11th and the patriots. the problem there, of course, is the more people who have access to this information, which is what we want, to give a real-life scenario, what you're talking about, a terrorism investigation in the united states, you're looking at it in the united states, you need to have integration sharing from the cia and their overseas collectors who are getting information about let's say the pakistan end of that network to the fbi headquarters who are getting that information and then sharing it with the fbi folks in the field, whoever that cell is and the local law enforcement folks who are actually out there in the streets. so all these people need to know the information it will be fully effective. the problem is, of course, that raises the possibility of that that affirmation will be compromised. and, you know, we saw that. he was able to get access to an amazing amo
of annapolis have already seen flooding. not as bad as it could be. john harion taking a look at things. >> john? >> reporter: high tide is not scheduled until 6:01, just under an hour from now. as you can see the water is not a particular problem. it's a foot and a half to 2 feet below. just an hour or so ago, there were people still strolling around. the wind has stiffnd, coming in at 25 to 35 miles per hour with some gusts higher, and now there's virtually no one out, at least in this part of annapolis. there are occasional cars cruising by a. couple of bars are open. but all stores and services are closed. about 80% of the gas stations about two hours ago when we cruiseed the town looking for diesel fuel from our truck, 80% of the gas stations were closed. there's some flooding in low- lying parts of anne arundel county, and there are road closures. here's a list, river road, south of harrell harbor closed because of standing water. defense highway, which is route 450 at stevens church road. that's the crossen area. the road is closed. one more for you. near the border of prince ge
. >> reporter: not so said aaa's john townsend, who cites experts who claim the amount of the fine doesn't matter. he points to our neighbors as an example. >> the fines are $40 in the state of maryland. yet people are complying with the law. people are slowindown, and the number of violations has decreased in that state. >> reporter: no one denies d.c. coiffures are overflowing with money from speed camera tickets. the mayor said that he put that money to work. >> the additional revenue generated by speeding fines will be used to hire 100 new police officers. >> reporter: council member tommy wells supports the idea of more officers on the street. he said the mayor's plan still uses camera fines to fat know up the budget. >> when we balance the budget, it should be done with taxes and we should not use fines across the city to balance the budget. >> one thing to point out under the mayor's plan for speed limits over 10 miles an hour, well, that will be dropped to $50. the thing is when it comes to speed cameras throughout the city, chief lanier said that her department does not send out
john boehner's car. i'll walk mitch mcconnell's dog. i'll do whatever is required to get this done. >> president obama heads to new hampshire a bit later today for a stop in nashua. vice president biden is scheduled to hold an event in lynch burg, virginia. >>> now we go to ohio where nbc's ron mott is on that bus tour with paul ryan. hello to you ron again. where are you in the many stops on that bus tour today? >> reporter: hey there, alex. i've got to get my back stretched out. we've got five stops as you mentioned here today. three more tomorrow. eight in total. 400 plus miles over the next two days with paul ryan. right now we're in janesville, ohio. just wrapping up a speech here. a lot of people are wondering why so much attention on ohio? this state may be the one that decides who wins this election. it's probably more important for governor romney than perhaps for the president because no republican candidate alex as you know has ever won the white house without winning here. so we expect to see the campaign tours between now and election day that governor romney or paul r
pictures over the weekend from joe johns, polling places in virginia. looked to be very long lines. people trying to get in before the storm hits. let me ask you this -- oftentimes in politics, in october before the big election, people talk about an october surprise. might this be the october surprise, this go round? >> you know, this is certainly surprising. look, i've actually been through three hurricanes, helped the team. we led the team that won the pulitzer for -- for hurricane katrina in biloxi. hurricanes are very unpredictable. when you first have the path coming up hugging the coast, maybe turning eastward out to see, now move that pressure -- to sea, now move that pressure system that will turn it in over our heads in d.c., you know, you don't know what's going to happen. particularly with nine days out to the election, these days are crucial for the campaigns to get out on the road, hit the swing states. those states that are going to be critical in deciding the next president. so this tosses a lot up in the air. >> brian, stand by for me. we created this pictures here. we put

are scrambling to make sure preparations are in place. and abc's john schriffen has that part of the story from lower manhattan. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning. we are here in battery park city, in what's now being called zone "a." 375,000 residents around the city live in the low-lying potential flood zones. you look at the water right now, it is calm. but when sandy comes through, it wouldn't take much for the water to come up over the walls. last year, for hurricane irene, these residents had to be evacuated. so, this time around, they're ready for the worst. east coast communities going on the offensive. building sand walls, securing property and stocking up on supplies, as the superstorm closes in. after being pounded last year by hurricane irene with its record storm surge and feet of flooding, new york residents are once again bracing for the worst. damage from irene topped $14 billion. and sandy could wreak even more havoc. >> certainly having lived through it. i lost everything in my basement. i had up to ten feet of water in my house. this is a concern. >> reporter: gov
. a researcher at johns hopkins, he's put together a model, predicting, how many of us may lose power. remember, irene left 7 million without power. >> our model suggesting 10 million. >> reporter: roughly 10 million without power for a week or more. if 50 million feel the effects of this, that's 1 in 5, could be without electricity. if you're inland, think again, it could be a bad one. dan and bianna. >> it will go well inland. david kerley, thank you for your reporting. >>> another breaking story we're watching closely. a massive earthquake off the west coast triggered a tsunami warning in hawaii. our worst fears quelled for now at least. on our affiliate reports. >> very serious situation in hawaii earl yi this evening. the civil service calling for a evacuation of the low-lying areas. caused by the 7.7 earthquake in canada. >> they're seeing the waves come in. it's still going to be a long night tonight. they'll have to wait at least a couple of more hours before they can consider lower that advisory. it appears that it's not going to be as bad as once predicted. >>> back out to sam, talk u
to agree they have a much superior ground game than the one john mccain had in 2008 which a lot of people describe as almost nonexistent. they think they've almost closed the gap if not matched the obama ground game. the perception is it seems like it's right. the obama campaign does have a more robust operation on the ground. >> i think, you know -- >> joy ann -- >> go ahead, craig. >> i was going to say, you've got to think in a race that is as close as this one that the turn out to vote effort over the next week or so really could make the difference. >> absolutely. you look at what's going on right behind you and the way the democrats have sort of created an event, almost a carnival around voting because they rely so much on running up as much early vote as they can, this year they're adding the that, trying to cut into the republican dominance among absentee. one of the reasons republicans don't ever seem to have a ground game is a lot of what republicans do is they push for absentees and push for votes on election day. i remember in 2004 when i was working on the other side in campa
, of course john boccieri, who i think you know pretty well, is no longer serving us but i hope he'll be back. in line with that, the redistricting issue too in ohio. i wish yud speak a little bit to the pathology of how these districts are being gerrymandered and -- specifically in -- an issue two in ohio. >> we're supporting issue two, i'm supporting issue two which creates a citizen panel to redraw the congressional districts and the legislative districts. >> is that on the ballot as well? >> it's on the ballot as well. it takes the pen out of the hands of politicians, both democrats and republicans, so we can start getting districts that are inclusive of entire communities and other things, to make sure we don't have a district, for example, one that starts in mahoney county in northeastern ohio and goes all the way down to south central ohio and includes, you know, is basically drawn as a republican district. republicans control the pen in this particular instance and redrew districts that benefited republicans. to think that there are a million more democrats in ohio than there are repu
robinson. it's 7:25. before we look at our top check in with meteorologist john collins and, john, we heard that sandy is downgraded to a tropical storm. what can we expect? >> we can still expect the same swaying, it's just a difference of five to 10 miles an hour as far as wind strengths are concerned. right now let's give you the temperature. at b.w.i. marshall with generally cloudy skies, the temperature is 58 degrees. 90% the humidity, and northeast wind at 6 and barometric pressure is down from yesterday, the storm is getting closer. 29.98. if the radar is available, there it is. we can see, not all the storm is showing up here. a lot of of the rain is out of range of the radar but you can see the expansive rain running from the center of the storm up coast, carolina to near cape hatteras. we already have the front to the west of us, as well, so we are between systems at this stage of the game. let's look at the forecast for today, we expect the clouds to move in, the cold front to stay west of us during the day today and high temperature with a rain chance late in the day in the 60's
